St John Paul II Special Edition Clip On Figure
Since childhood, Saint John Paul II loved skiing in his home country of Poland. Moments after being elected pope in 1978, he turned to his friend and said, “I will ski again when they let me!”
This special edition charm is inspired by the poem Pope on a Slope found in the book Fools for Heaven, a collection of children's poems written by Stephanie Petters and illustrated by Emily Demary.
